Birds and Stars and Buttons and Brads, Oh My!

Yes, those are all the things I had to put on this card. This Monday's featured stamper name was jstarbright, and this was a combination of things she likes and things relating to her name. The owl image was stamped in silver pigment ink on black paper and embossed with stardust transparent ep. I drew the tiny stars with silver gel pen and put a teeny dot of crystal Stickles in the center of each. The stripe in the black paper is silver, as is the background edging. For the buttons I put the prongs of silver brads through the buttonholes, then coated the top of each brad with the Stickles. So the card has sparkle and shine that the photo fails to show.

Recipe: Stamps- Inkadinkado (Winter Birds), MFT (Essential Sentiments); Paper- Basic Grey (Ambrosia), DCWV (striped, mellalic silver), black; Ink- silver pigment; Accessories- silver ep, stardust transparent ep, silver brads, black buttons, silver gel pen.
